surrounded entirely by south africa. lesotho has two significant natural resources -- diamonds -- and equally sparkling but even more precious for our planet -- water. most of lesotho's water comes from more than a dozen rivers that traverse through the country. so cross-border co-operation is key to making the most of the region's resources. a major hydroelectric power plant in the highlands covers almost all of the country's electricity needs. lesotho is now already selling water and power to south africa. and it keeps improving its water management to keep up with the growing needs of its large neighbor. >> the village of mapeleng is tucked away in the lesotho highlands. it's home to some 600 people, who live from their cattle and harvests. despite the high altitude and frequent rains, the region is fairly barren. there are few proper roads here. villagers get around by horse or donkey. nearby is one of the biggest lakes in lesotho. it wasn't always so. there used to be just a small river running through the valley. since the mid-1990s, a 185- meter-high wall was erected in

primarily associated with africa. it gives me great pleasure to lead my address to the 67 regular session of the united nations general assembly with the news of progress from ghana and stories of the success from the sub-saharan african continent. the number of countries engaged in conflict is steadily decreasing year after year. as that happens, we are also witnessing a steady increase in the number of countries that are governed along democratic lines. as is true of all new democracies, these systems are not without their flaws. while they may not be perfect, they are promising. in fact, three of the african countries that lost their leaders this year experienced seamless and peaceful constitutional transitions of power to a new leadership. you see today right now that there is something spectacular happening in africa. growth is taking the place of stagnation. tranquillity is taking the place of turmoil. democratic governments founded on the rule of law is taking the place of dictatorships. denying the th visibility and viability of these developments. at the very least, they require

africa, thousands of miles, relatively few good harbors which hindered africa's development, but the east coast was packed with them, and the united states, the continental core of the u.s. was the last resource rich part of the zone that was settled and waterways flowing in a convenient east-west fashion than the rest of the world's waterways combined. so i'm saying that americans -- we're important not only because of their ideas and their democracy but because of where we happen to live as well, and so that's why these things, like mountains matter. the himalayas matter. they have allowed india and china to develop into who completely disstink great world civilizations without having much to do with each other, through long periods of history. >> so let's take that image that you offered of america, this amazingly suitable geographical place with all these great natural harbors and rivers that run the right way, but that was true for thousands of years, and did not lead to the development in what we think of as the united states, to great civilization, outreaching. it wasn't u
